The Special Perils Of Casino Patronage
Terrestrial and riverboat casinos alike present heightened opportunities for injury to people invited onto the premises, for several reasons:
- People go to casinos to gamble. Frequently, they drink. Both activities tend to distract casino customers from potential hazards.
- Many casino patrons are elderly. They may have vision or other problems, or may be handicapped. Such conditions may make a person less able to recognize or avoid potential hazards.
These heightened opportunities for injury mean that casinos have a heightened duty to make their premises safe, especially for their elderly clientele. And yet, all too frequently they fail to follow proper protocols with their staff, leading to unacceptable lapses such as:
- Leaving obstacles in the path of exits
- Leaving debris on the floor
- Failing to put out safety cones or rope off areas such as wet floors
Securing Evidence To Support Your Claim For Compensation
For obvious reasons, casinos are exceptionally well-equipped with security cameras. This means that virtually any injury suffered in a casino should be caught on tape. When an individual injured in a casino comes to us, our first order of business is to obtain the tape through the legal discovery process. Once the tape discloses what happened, we will be able to advise you on the secure course of action.
